Delicious Macadamia Nut Cookie topped with fruit and cream cheese

Ingredients

For the Cookie Crust:

  • ¾ cup butter, softened
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 ¾ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ tsp kosher salt
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ cup dry roasted macadamia nuts, chopped

For the Topping:

  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • ½ cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • fresh fruit (blueberries, raspberries, pineapple)

Instructions

  1. For the cookie dough, beat butter, vanilla and sugar together until creamy, about 2-3 minutes. Beat in egg. Add flour, salt and baking powder, beat until combined. Fold in chopped nuts.
  2. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. I used a 15inch round pizza pan. Press cookie dough into a 12inch circle (about ¼-½inch thick).
  3. Bake in a 375 degree F oven for 18-21 minutes. Remove and allow to cool completely.
  4. To garnish, beat cream cheese with powdered sugar and vanilla. Spread over cooled cookie. Top with your favorite fresh fruit! ENJOY.

  1. I’m making this VERY soon!!! PINNING! I love white chocolate macadamia as the base!!

  2. Aimee, this pizza looks incredible! I could eat that cookie all day long, but add that white chocolate spread…YUM!

  3. This looks to me like a pizza, salad, cookie and cake in one. It’s also more like a fruit pizza but it’s healthier because of the fruits and it’s really attractive too. This would make a great dessert for the Fourth of July since it can be whipped up in a jiffy.

  4. Are you kidding? This is the coolest thing ever, Aimee! I am a NUT (get it, har har) for macadamia cookies and summer desserts with fruit! This looks like a slice of heaven to me. Thanks and have a happy 4th!

  5. White chocolate is my favorite, and I love cream cheese. Im obsessed with macadamia nut cookies. I feel like this was made for me. Can’t even WAIT to try out that spread!!

  6. Oh my goodness, I haven’t seen that product, but it would have been perfect in the dessert pizza I just made – I’m totally using it next time! And I LOVE your macadamia crust!

  7. Oh man – I adore macadamias, and I love this whole idea of fruit pizzas. Awesome way to cram fruit into kids and difficult boyfriends.

  8. Ohh you macadamia cookie pizza looks so good! I have never seen those kind of Philadelphia Cream Cheeses! I don’t think I could use it in baking because I’d probably eat it with a spoon! 🙂 Beautiful recipe!!

  9. Loving the idea of a macadamia crust! And after reading this I have determined that I clearly do not make enough dessert pizzas.
